Brevard Soccer Academy is fully embracing Futsal as part of our soccer culture. We at BSA believe that Futsal will help our players fall in love with the game of soccer and improve skills, techniques and speed of play. BSA has appointed Chris Felber as their Futsal Director.
Coach Felber brings a wealth of Experience in Futsal from, playing, coaching, running leagues, tournaments and club programs. Felber has won Futsal National titles in both Scotland and America, and multiple US Futsal and US youth Futsal regional titles, as well as many state titles in Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Brevard Soccer Academy is building a futsal court at Max K. Rodes Park. This will be the first of its kind in the area. Uruguay developed the idea of Futsal to help train for Olympics and the first ever World Cup through the winter. Uruguay went on to win the first ever FIFA World Cup and the popularity of Futsal has given the game worldwide popularity. Futsal has developed into its own professional sport with leagues, national teams and its own FIFA Futsal World Cup. Futsal is the only indoor version of Soccer recognized by FIFA.
Futsal is the only indoor game sanctioned by FIFA. Skills development is important, and Futsal is recognized as the best form of indoor football. That's not the only reason, though.
FIFA says Futsal is better. The Brazilians and Spanish are among the many nations that swear by it. Pele, Ronaldo, Robinho, Romario, Zico, Kaka, Neymar, Messi, Inestia and Xavi all credit Futsal for much of their skill and technique development. All the major heads of Soccer and FIFA declared that this is the way to go. Once you experience Futsal, you will see the reasons.
Some Futsal Benefits
BSA is committed to bringing Futsal to our community which will provide multiple benefits to our youth and adults alike:
"As a kid, you need to touch the ball as much as you can. You should always be with the ball. You should have a feeling that wherever the ball is, you can do anything with it. No matter where it is, where it is on your body, how it's spinning, how it's coming at you, the speed it's coming at you, anything. You can learn the tactical side of the game later. It's amazing to me that people put so much emphasis on trying to be tactical and worry about winning when it doesn't matter when you're 12 years old. We're going to have big, strong, fast players. We're Americans, we're athletes. But if we never learn at an early age to be good on the ball, then it's just useless."
- Landon Donovan, US National Team
Ronaldo, the great Brazilian player developed his skills at an early age with Futsal.
"At 12, I joined an indoor "Futebol' De Salao" league to play Futsal. Futsal is a game played on a hard surface with a small ball made to roll -- not bounce. Your footwork had to be good to move in and out of traffic, since the pitch was so small -- about the size of a basketball court. I loved the challenge of playing in such tight spaces."
- Ronaldo "El Fenomeno", Brazilian National Team, Real Madrid, European and World Cup champion
“The first thought is to look for a guy who is 1.80 meters tall and very strong. That’s not the answer. What we need are players that understand our essence, the concept of the third man, the pass that creates superiority”
- Xavi, Barcelona and Spain, multi time European champion and World Cup Winner
"The season of futsal is when I see the greatest improvement in my players as individuals and as teammates. The game its self is designed specifically to enable players to improve. Speed of play is enforced due to the four second rule, size of field and speed of the ball. The ball is smaller and heavier, making it more difficult to strike. As players return to the outdoor game, they will find it easier to strike the ball and add power. The tight field forces players to control the ball and figure out how to succeed under pressure. The game itself by nature will improve each player, however, I have found that the constant repetition provides naturally occurring teaching moments. We can teach our players concepts of 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4 and even 5v5 in almost every moment of the game. We learn big game concepts in a smaller more manageable environment which allows me the opportunity to provide instant and constant feedback."
- Chris Felber
Just watch Futsal players fight to keep the ball from crossing the touchline and you'll immediately begin to see how Futsal develops skill, control, and technique. A small field with lines puts players constantly under pressure from other players and out-of-play boundaries. Players must learn to settle the ball rapidly, turn sharply, shield effectively, pass quickly and move into open space. Compared to walled soccer or large indoor field soccer, Futsal places a greater premium on ball control. There is no reward for errant passes because the other team gets the ball. There is no incentive to 'kick and run' because the field is too small and packed with players. Players with the ball must use proper technique to maintain control and must seek out other players in space. Players without the ball must move to 'real' space and must truly support their teammates.
However, for Futsal, the emphasis is clearly on control and technique. Without control and technique you cannot expect to succeed in Futsal. If you are serious about skills and technique development, Futsal is the superior activity. Futsal promotes better technique and develops skills more rapidly. It is the "expressway" to correct soccer player development. It is time well spent.
As an offensive Futsal player, unlike other small sided or indoor soccer there are no walls to save errant passes. There are no walls to stop long balls. There are no walls to rebound errant shots. There are no walls against which to pin the ball or your opponent. There are no walls to help you if you lack the feinting skills to beat a defender. There are no walls to save you if your teammates are not moving into space to support you. In general, you must control the ball, use proper touch and technique, use correct pace, send accurate service, and truly work dynamic combinations. The speed of the ball and rules force players to play quickly in their head but controlled at their feet.
As a Futsal defender, you can 'face up' on an oncoming player just like in outdoor soccer (there is no wall pass to beat you). You can let errant passes go out of bounds to win the ball (the proper result of your opponent's faux pas). Goalies and defenders can concentrate on proper shot blocking angles. You do not need to worry about long overhead balls, which should go out of bounds. You can drive an oncoming player into the side to break up break-a ways or outnumbered breaks. In general, you can practice and perfect the defensive techniques, which apply to outdoor soccer. You don't waste time working on defending against phantom players (i.e. walls). Not being able to play back to your goalkeeper more than once and the fact the “long ball” is eliminated on a short fast field means defenders must learn how to play from the back and join in the attack. Futsal skills and creative ideas are vital for all Futsal players including the Goalkeeper and defenders.
Futsal is the new rage in soccer. However, the United States is just catching on to what the world already knows. Superior soccer skill is built by simulating the outdoor game indoors with small-sided games and a smaller ball. World famous clubs such as Ajax have used this approach for years. Futsal has been around since the 1920s and 1930s but America’s interest in soccer skill development has only recently focused attention on the training techniques used in successful soccer powerhouses such as Brazil, Holland, Germany, France, Argentina, Spain and Italy.
